We stumbled across Casablabla while wandering the streets looking for somewhere to have lunch. We were hoping to find somewhere we could dine outside as it was such a beautiful day. Unfortunately we weren't able to sit outside as there were already other people dining that were smoking (we had a 9 month old baby with us so we definitely... More

Love the atmosphere in a fun street - been a few times and never had any problem with service. if you are a visitor to Adelaide, easy to find and close to all the major hotels. Enjoyable tapas style food and good for after work drinks.

We have been here a couple of times now during the Festival and have found the menu inventive and the food excellent. The venue is attractive and for festival events the location is great There is, however a bit of a problem with the service - the staff (and there seem to be a lot of them) really don't keep... More

Arrived on a Wednesday night for dinner with a colleague from work - all the restaurants seemed busy due to the Tour Down Under but we managed to get a table here. This placed looked good from the outside so we decided to give it a try. The waitress was pleasant enough & explained all our options then left us... More

Let's face it, Adelaide is not the adrenalin capital of the world. Sure, it's a pleasant enough place, but it's not "going off" all the time. Well, what a breath of life is Casablabla!! We arrived at 6pm which was a good idea on a Saturday night, as by 6.30pm people were being turned away. We felt like fossils watching... More
